Even as the Congress high command is on the verge of taking a decision on the Telangana statehood, members of the government employees, students and teachers Joint Action Committee (JAC) on Sunday decided to intensify its agitations against the bifurcation of the state.

Speaking at a meeting at the Town Model College here on Sunday, the JAC president Dr Chennaiah said after elaborate discussions, the committee decided to intensify the agitations against the state division. The members also condemned the division of Rayalseema that the central government is mulling as a part of Rayala Telangana proposal.

Chennaiah urged all the people to join in the stir against the merger of two Rayalseema districts--Kurnool and Anantapur--into Telangana.

Speaking to the media, Chennaiah said that the agitations would begin from Monday. On the first day, the JAC will hold rallies in all revenue headquarters and also stage dharnas in front of the houses of all MLAs, MPs and ministers from the region, seeking their resignation. On Tuesday, a district headquarter bandh for all Rayalseema districts will be called, Chennaiah said.

“We will not allow the division of historic Rayalseema at any cost,” he said. JAC senior members Sunil Reddy, Subrahmanyam, Murali and others were present.
